E Daily Stock Pick: American Campus Communities

I'm now looking for a second real estate sector representative for my new Ivy portfolio. 

That real estate sector includes nine industries all related to real property ownership. Like: general real estate; Real Estate services; and seven varieties of real estate investment trusts, or REITs.

Today I'm reviewing a mid-cap residential REIT, named American Campus Communities Inc  Its trading ticker symbol is ACC

American Campus Communities Inc is a real estate investment trust that owns, manages and develops student housing properties in the United States.

The company is a fully integrated, self-managed and self-administered equity real estate investment trust (REIT) with expertise in the design, finance, development, construction management and operational management of student housing properties. As of September 30, 2018, American Campus Communities owned 168 student housing properties containing approximately 103,500 beds. Including its owned and third-party managed properties, ACC's total managed portfolio consisted of 202 properties with approximately 131,900 beds.

The company is the largest owner, manager and developer of high-quality student housing communities in the United States and is headquartered in Austin, TX.

I use three key data points to gauge the value of any dividend equity like American Campus Communities Inc: 

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

Besides those three, several other keys will finally unlock an equity or fund in which to invest.

Those first three primary keys, however, best tell whether a company has made, is making, and will make money. 

ACC Price

ACC's price per share closed at $42.84 yesterday. A year ago its price was $39.21. So price rose $3.63 per share last year, or 9.25%. 

Assuming ACC's stock trades in the range of $35 to $50 next year, ACC's recent $42.84 price could move up by $1.16 and grow to $44.00 by early-January, 2020.
